In The News...
Corporations Pour Millions into Defeating Washington State’s GMO Labeling Initiative 

Monsanto, Dupont, Bayer, Dow, the Grocery Manufacturers Assn and BASF have donated over $11 million to the ‘No on 522 Campaign.’ In contrast, supporting donors of Yes on 522 – Organic Consumers, Mercola.com, and Dr. Bronners – have donated $3.5 million collectively.

Washington is doing what California tried and failed to accomplish last year in requiring manufacturers to label foods that contain genetically modified ingredients. But a recent poll showed strong support for the measure. Two out of three voters polled said they would vote in favor of 522. Check out yeson522.com for more info.
